The life of a professional wrestler is not without its fair share of drawbacks. This includes crazy fans who jump the barricades and either try to interact with the wrestlers or attack them. It seems there is more to the Seth Rollins story than initially thought. It turns out that Rollins’ attacker was still upset over getting catfished years ago.
As seen on last week’s episode of Monday Night RAW, a fan attacked Seth Rollins and caused a huge stir. Seth Rollins was utterly blindsided, which is why he couldn’t react to the situation as quickly as he’d have want to.
Seth Rollins later on admitted that he found the whole experience terrifying. He added that he was okay. It seems Bischoff has an interesting take on what happened to Rollins.
While speaking on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, Eric Bischoff talked about Seth Rollins’ recent incident. Bischoff stated that he believes it made Seth Rollins look bad.
I’ve been on a receiving end of one or two of those. I felt bad,” Bischoff said. “For Seth, I also wonder why he didn’t see it coming. The angle I saw was shot from a fan, I’ll throw that disclaimer in there. But Seth was walking towards the back, and the guy was coming from Seth’s 2 o’clock position to the right from about fifteen yards away. Now I think Seth had his head down because he thought everything was over and probably didn’t expect or hopefully didn’t expect it. I can kind of understand it.
But here’s what made it look bad for Seth. The guy took Seth down. Depending on who you listen to, Seth was moving in for a choke. Security hit, there’s bodies, like 800 lbs of body everywhere. And then three or four guys from security finally get this cat off Seth, and then Seth stands up and says, ‘Is that all you got?!’ That’s something I was hoping we wouldn’t see on television because that didn’t look good. Well, we didn’t see it on TV, but we saw it after the fact.”
Spencer also apologized for his actions recently. Elisah Spencer got out of lockup but is expected to appear in front of a judge in December. We sincerely hope such an incident never happens again to any pro wrestler.
